What he said + some

by goldie

Another thing to consider is how much heat the parts being encased would absorb. It could keep the print head too cool, then possibly store the heat where the filament would normally be trying to cool.

A thing I've seen is people will print a shell, jog the machine over, then slide their parts into the print, then finish the print to seal the top.

I think it could work on small things, but just like a mill, you'd have to worry about the head colliding with things.
